Regional: Managing Climate Impacts on Health in Water and Agriculture Sectors and Disaster Risk Reduction

Sovereign Project | 43561-012

Summary

Climate change will affect all sectors, and it is important to integrate climate related health risks into adaptation strategies and health systems. This integrated monitoring of climate related health impacts should also lead to improved disaster risks management strategies that integrate health risks. New and improved surveillance systems can help to identify climate induced health risks and minimise their potential to cause damage. Early warning information must be captured and used more effectively to address climate related health impacts. Existing early warning systems often lack multi sectoral information, including related to health risks. Improved early warning systems should enable governments and organizations to undertake procurement, pre positioning of stocks, and general preparedness and awareness raising activities in a timelier manner.

Latest Project Documents


Project Data Sheets (PDS) contain summary information on the project or program. Because the PDS is a work in progress, some information may not be included in its initial version but will be added as it becomes available. Information about proposed projects is tentative and indicative.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

Description Climate change will affect all sectors, and it is important to integrate climate related health risks into adaptation strategies and health systems. This integrated monitoring of climate related health impacts should also lead to improved disaster risks management strategies that integrate health risks. New and improved surveillance systems can help to identify climate induced health risks and minimise their potential to cause damage. Early warning information must be captured and used more effectively to address climate related health impacts. Existing early warning systems often lack multi sectoral information, including related to health risks. Improved early warning systems should enable governments and organizations to undertake procurement, pre positioning of stocks, and general preparedness and awareness raising activities in a timelier manner. And most importantly, to properly address the public health effects of extreme events and climate change, it is necessary to engage the health sector in disaster preparedness activities at all levels: regionally across border, national, local and community.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
Impact The impact of the TA will be strengthened capacity to manage climate related health risks in the water and agriculture sectors, and in disaster risk management. The TA will increase understanding of the relationship between climate change and health in the water and agriculture sectors, and in disaster risk management.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome The outcomes will be (i) improved understanding of the links between impacts of climate change in agriculture and water sector and its consequences for the health of the populations (ii) development of roadmaps to integrate climate related health impacts in agriculture and water sectors projects, and in disaster risks management (iii) better integration of climate related health impacts in disaster risks management policies and early warning systems.
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs 1. Evidence based good practices from the literature to address climate related health impacts in agriculture and water sectors and in disaster risk management 2. Evidence based good practices addressing climate related health impacts in ADB water and agriculture projects and disaster risk management 3. Conceptual framework linking climate change, agriculture and water sector, disasters and health of the populations 4. Tools that will help assess climate related health impacts in the agriculture and water sectors and in disaster risk management 5. Capacity needs assessment in DMCs to address climate related health impacts in agriculture and water sectors and in disaster risk management and 6. Capacity needs assessment of ADB staff to address climate related health impacts in agriculture and water sectors and in disaster risk management
